PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about January 6 and will be available
for about 1 year. Remember, even if you miss hearing a show the week I
record, you can always find it within the FeedPlayer’s archive of older
shows. Owing to schedule demands, I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon
as possible thereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.Each week through my January shows I’m airing tracks from The 1861 Project,
a series that touches upon the Civil War experience. We’re up to Volume 2:
From The Famine To The Front. This collection of original music recalls
those families with Scottish and Irish ties who fought in the war. From the
liner notes “Every singer, player and writer on this album has a strong
connection to Ireland, by ancestry, birth, or just by heart”. More about
this fascinating series at www.1861project.com

On 12/26/12 at 2pm ET I will do a COUNTDOWN exclusively on Twitter (not an audio/video event), synchcronized to Facebook, as I will announce the top 100 artists of the year. I plan to also announce then the winner of the title of Best New
Artist, top 10 albums of the year, and the updated charts for the quarter
and for all time (years 2003 to present). Publicize the event by using the Twitter hashtag #radiocbluetop100

TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: @gosbee @pagesofjenn @GrantSharonDuo @Art_Elem @AndrewHollett14
****

Long-time listeners, even some of you new ones, will recognize these names: Andy Friedman. Amy Speace. Natalia Zukerman. Rachael Sage. Mark Erelli. Hungrytown. Vance Gilbert. Each are busy touring artists. Each are very communicative to their fans, directly or otherise. And each have been named Radio Crystal Blue Artists of the Year in the past. Will there be a repeat winner? Or will someone new claim the title? I will reveal all in the above-mentioned COUNTDOWN next week. Also I will reveal the full extent of several charts, after the event, on my website.
COVERAGE: 3-4 times a month I go out to Philly-area gigs to do photos, some
video, and a write-up on my website afterward. I do this for free, tho at
some point in the future I might want to barter this work or be simply paid.NEXT shows I’m covering:
12/29 Ray G. Ward performing at Milkboy Coffee in Ardmore, PA www.raygward.com
**************
RCB REVIEW from this week’s shows:
RCB proper: Once again I recite Jack Kerouac’s 1961 short story about Christmas in Lowell MA, set in 1932. The music of Greg Lake and Enya both reference Christmas rain instead of snow. Received a ton of music by songwriters and bands this year that got their own segments. My favorites that aired this year were songs by Vegas With Randolph, Roy Schneider, and Tracy Newman (she of The Reinforcements. New music aired this week by South Philly’s own Ryan Tennis, Delorentos (Dublin alternative rockers), and Oliver Sean (Goa). Achilles Wheel’s tune “This Is Life” runs 8 minutes. David Wilcox has a humorous song about the apocalypse, spun here in tandem with a concert to celebrate the end of days. That concert was on Thursday in Asheville, NC. John Brodeur, Chris Riffle, & The Universal Thump shared billing in NYC on 12/18. All were aired in segment 3. Final segment include ‘my’ holiday songs..some which are recognized as such, others with rather obscure sources and settings. Returned to airing bagpipes to close another year.

COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews, photos, video, and audio of live events. You can see
and hear evidence across my Facebook and YouTube channels, plus the field
recording FeedPlayer.Time, location and expense will be taken into account
before taking on a job.

No show attendance in the last week and not sure I’ll be going to one tonight, seeing how the Philly weather is looking for Friday.
I am going to this one:
8/24: Starring (Northern Spy Records), Guardian Hall, et al, at Kung Fu Necktie, here in Philly
Looking for a 2nd event to attend in the area before the month is out.
SKYPE INTERVIEWS: I got the mic issue solved! I plan to begin interviewing Ariel Publicity clients through Skype on a weekly basis. All audio will be available through the aforementioned ‘field recording/interview’ FeedPlayer.SWAG: At some point in the near future I want to create and distribute (or have
created or distributed at least) some updated RCB logos and swag.

*********************
RCB REVIEW:

RCB Novus Ordo: David Leinweber returns to my airwaves with his latest acoustic album. Award-winning songwriter Lee Feldman is present here with his 4th album. Kati Mac, whom I had interviewed maybe 5 years ago, returns with her latest. You can hear Rob Morsberger on piano and backing vox on “Highway 100”. Rob himself is releasing 2 new albums very shortly and is fighting cancer.I had last met him about 10 years ago supporting Jon Herington.RCB proper: In mid-August I always start with The Velvet Underground’s “The Gift”. Out of this tragicomic piece I always seem to take different directions. This year, having absorbed some history on Serge Gainsbourg, I spun the opener to his 1971 concept album re Melody Nelson. From that lovely pastiche of symphonic rock and spoken word (aha), we go to the spoken word intro and the psychedelics of The Small Faces, then some early Eno, and then the Madchester scene circa 1991 with a long danceable jam from Saint Etienne. Segment 1 following: Two NYC songwriters beginning this one (Bryan Dunn, John Brodeur), then some soft songs through the rest of this segment. Segment 2 begins with MJ Hibbett & The Validators’ concept album Dinosaur Planet. Followed up with live songs by The StereoFidelics and Sirsy. This weekend starts the first ever Liberty Music Festival, centered around The Legendary Dobbs here in Philly, with 74 artists performing. I spun 5 of those artists in one dedicated segment. My favorites are the ones from Venice Sunlight and The Way Home, both with classic pop-rock leanings. Late Cambrian is heard once again here with a great electronic-fueled song that should be in the clubs. All three with songs that remain in my head for days. Beyond this, spun another from The Timid Roosevelts, who are just about to release their new CD. Segment 4: Greg Klyma shares billing with Danielle Miraglia at The Burren in Somerville, MA. You can hear Greg back up Danielle on “See The Light” which I spun following Greg’s tune. Greg, along with Kate Klim and Meg Braun, perform at the upcoming Cutting Edge Of The Campire Festival at Passim, in Cambridge MA. Of course, I spin Meg’s tune “August” here. On the same weekend as the festival in Cambridge is the Kerrville Wine & Music Festival, as I spun music by 4 artists who are part of the lineup (Cary Cooper, Raina Rose, Anna Dagmar, Brother Sun). Closed with Heather Pierson’s summer romance song, plus a Philly subway romance song by Vance Gilbert, and an instrumental from Bolton MA’s Dan & Faith.
